Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ibby | 2/7/2014

    " possibly one of the worst books I have ever read; no plot AT ALL. it was so boring. I know it's supposed to be an "uplifting" book about overcoming stuff, but seriously. the ending was horrible. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mina | 1/27/2014

    " this is a hart warming story about a girl who wares theses bracelets that each mean something and she snaps them and you go through the whole book wondering what the purple bracelet means and then her best friends grandma gets sick and the two friend have to carry through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosanna | 1/27/2014

    " pretty good / understand ur friends "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 ♥Dacia♥ | 1/16/2014

    " I thought the part when she licked the rhubarb leaf was wierd because rhubarb leaves are piosonous... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leeann | 1/6/2014

    " This book is so inspiring. Nuff said. <3 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Isabel Boucher | 1/3/2014

    " this book was really simple and thats why i liked it. but i think the story could have been written better than it was. it almost made me cry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Broomall | 12/29/2013

    " This book took less time to read than a novel-in-verse would, yet it has a similar sort of poetic style (sort of), which I would expect from a book written by an accomplished adult author. (The same was true for McGhee's YA book "All Rivers Flow to the Sea," but I found that book less engaging.) You can see clearly in only 128 pages why Eddie and Sally were best friends and get a clear understanding of their every emotion. It is a sad book, but not a remarkably devastating one. It probably isn't a remarkable book by most people's standards of whatever constitutes one, aside from the way it is written which is rather beautiful, but don't hold that against it. It's still a pretty good and moving tale of friendship, fear, and hope. Pretty deep for a kid's book, too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MaryAnn | 12/26/2013

    " I really loved this book. It is lyrical, insightful, funny and memorable. Although it is classified as Juvenile Fiction I am not sure how many JFic age readers would get it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emcwriter12 caltiere | 12/25/2013

    " i Loved this book. I read it in a day it was amazing. NO futher comments. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allyssihn | 12/9/2013

    " this book is really good. it's got a lower grade reading level as far as vocab goes, but it's still a really good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marcia | 11/22/2013

    " This is a quiet, quirky book about friendship and caring. Rubber band bracelets, a mom who doesn't talk, a hovel and a true friendship make for a nice read. Reminded me of Kate DiCamillo a bit. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paige Aloise | 8/9/2013

    " This is the best book about a girl and her rubber bands. She tells a story about why she wears them and she tells about her best friend and her grandmother. It is the best book i ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 5/31/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Langdon | 2/8/2013

    " sweet, lyrical book, interesting characters. If I see the girl who liked Olive's Ocean, I'll hand it to her. Or someone looking for a book about friendship that has no humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 2/7/2013
